    Ummmm. I’m sorry. Maybe I’m missing something. Is that it? Really? This is the “devastating” video that will sink Obama?

    Boy, you guys are in HUGE trouble…

      No JMO the country is in HUGE trouble, some are just stupid to realize that.

    • Amazona March 8, 2012 / 11:31 am

      Did anyone say this single video would “sink” Obama?

      No? Then why make such a stupid comment?

      No single thing will “sink” Obama—it will be the cumulative effect of three years of assorted revelations, ranging from his radicalism to his incompetence to his whining blame of everything on someone else to his lavish vacations to his groveling to America’s enemies to—well, the list goes on.

      The fact is, to the really committed Obamabots, NOTHING could “sink” him. It either wouldn’t matter, or they would be convinced it was fake and just another racist attack on The One We Have All Been Waiting For.

      For another, the Barack Obama who ran in 2008 was an unknown, running on platitudes and promises, unburdened by a voting record,
      protected from scrutiny by a devoted and complicit press, and in an America where the accusation of “RACIST!!” still had some power.

      Today, he has a record, and it is not a good one. Today he has to answer for a cabinet and a passel of czars who are so far to the Left, so radical, exposure of their true ideologies and agendas will upset many Americans. Today he has been scrutinized, and this will increase in the next few months. And today most of America has seen the epithet “RACIST!!” hurled so often, and for so little cause, it has lost its punch and is now a joke when the Left tries to use it to distract from legitimate criticisms of Obama policy and agendas.

      And you guys act like a nation would have to do a 180 for him to lose. Nah, not so much. In 2008 he won by about nine and a half million votes, in an election with a record turnout of black voters and young starry-eyed voters and some of the hard-core radical Left who had not voted before because they had never had a candidate so radical he had any appeal to them. This time around, these groups are far less excited about him. Many black voters thought he would use his office to run the nation FOR blacks, and the piddling little token of appointing Holder to AG to state he would not prosecute black-on-white crime is just a crumb tossed to them. They are not happy, and the only way to get them stirred up again is to convince them Obama is being attacked and vilified because he is black, and try for the sympathy/defense vote. College students? We’re back to politics now, instead of American Idol, and the glamor of 2008 Obama has worn off, showing the tired, inept 2012 Obama. Even radical Leftists are fed up with him.

      Three weeks after he was inaugurated, someone confided in me that she and her husband had voted for Obama and were starting to think they had made a mistake. THREE WEEKS!!!

      But back to the vote count. Does it mean the GOP would have to pick up nine and a half million votes? Of course not. It means they would have to pick up five million, give or take.

      So in 2008 we had Rock Star Obama running a wildly emotional campaign that was based on a tent-revival approach to getting people worked up into an emotional frenzy, vs plodding old unexciting McCain who couldn’t even get all of the GOP out to vote for him. And even then he only won by fewer than 10 million votes.

      This time we will have the faded rock star wannabe, political version of Milli Vanilli whose entire political persona is based on production values and smoke and mirrors, running not only against someone who will represent an effort to fix what he has broken but against his own record.

      And all the opposition has to pick up is about five million votes—and that many only if the Left can wind up everyone who turned out last time to give it another shot.

    “Excetera”? The speaker says “excetera”? I hate that!

    And, OMG, open your hearts and minds? This is waay worse than Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein and BOTH Bush Sr and Jr doing business with the bin Ladens.!


    • neocon1 March 8, 2012 / 8:52 am

      The bin ladens were NOT osama,, seems the Klintons did pretty good by him though.

    • Amazona March 8, 2012 / 11:35 am

      freakzo, be honest here—-do you really truly believe that the Bushes did business with Osama Bin Laden?

      Or with any part of vast Bin Laden family which supported Osama Bin Laden?


      Of course not. You know that the Bin Ladens who did business in the U;S., who were friends of the Bushes, had rejected Osama decades ago, disowned him, cut him off, had nothing to do with him. You have to know this. Everyone knows this.

      So when you say something like this, possibly hoping you will get a pass if people think it was just based on stupidity—-a card you never hesitate to play—-you are wrong, because we know it was said out of sheer blatant dishonesty.

      Which is, now that I think of it, another card you play pretty often.

      • Count d'Haricots March 9, 2012 / 12:49 pm

        ”Have you ever taken the time to consider that what the Weathermen were trying to do was the right thing to do. William Ayers and Bernadette (sic) Dohrn had more guts than most of you lot when it comes to fighting for social change. They were revolutionaries.

        That’s just the kind of juvenile pap I expect from a social outcast and delusional rebel without a clue that engages in infantile role-playing games behind a keyboard. Amazona accurately described this “Diane” miscreant in her comment below.

        Here’s the story on her “revolutionaries” the cowardly Dohrn and Ayres from the FBI; “When the SDS collapsed in 1969, the Weather Underground stepped forward, inspired by communist ideologies and embracing violence and crime as a way to protest the Vietnam War, racism, and other left-wing aims. “Our intention is to disrupt the empire…to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks,” claimed the group’s 1974 manifesto, Prairie Fire. By the next year, the group had claimed credit for 25 bombings and would be involved in many more over the next several years.”

        These “revolutionaries” were responsible for the bombing death of a policeman, yet these two brave freedom fighters have denied any responsibility for this or the other murders they caused, including the deaths of their own coconspirators, and the planned murders at the Fort Dix Army dance.

        Blowing up cops by stealth and trying to murder soldiers and innocent civilians at a dance, then hiding an lying for decades; real gutsy!

        And by the way, Ms. Filth, her name is Bernardine Dohrn.

      • tiredoflibbs March 9, 2012 / 3:21 pm

        BFB (not “best friend”): “Have you ever taken the time to consider that what the Weathermen were trying to do was the right thing to do?”

        Really?? That stupid moronic proggy statement invalidates anything you say. …. and you continue to regurgitate the proggy nonsense or in this case marxist/leninist/maoist propaganda: “William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn had more guts than most of you lot when it comes to fighting for social change. They were revolutionaries.”

        There it is – “revolutionaries”. Of course, if anyone from the right decides they want change from the corrupt status quo, you and your pathetic ilk will be there to label them as “dangerous” and “extreme” just like you and your fellow mindless drones have labeled the TEA party. Of course, there are no incidents of “fighting for social change” or any of the vile racist crap that you claim at TEA party rallies.

        On the other hand, the “occupy” people (mostly white deadbeats from the far left) have done far worse and you and your ilk praise them for it.

        You are one twisted miserable individual who wants to benefit from someone else’s hard work at no cost to you (in time or labor). In short, you are a pathetic moocher, who has a very weak mental capacity and can be easily influenced by the golden words from some figure-head – just like Germans in the 30s.

      • maudmabelsmithsonianmcdaniel-jones ABC, ASAP, WHO, MbR, IQ0, 86, PBS, MSRP March 9, 2012 / 4:19 pm

        So Diane shows her true color (red) in admitting that she thinks the efforts to kill American policemen and other citizens was “the right thing to do” and that in her opinion “William Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn had more guts than most of you lot when it comes to fighting for social change.”.

        “Social change” is a pretty sanitized term for cowardly murder by bomb, don’t you think? What kind of “social change” is achieved by butchering policemen?

      • Amazona March 9, 2012 / 4:26 pm

        I see “Diane” also got in an obligatory racial comment in addition to her support for terrorism and defense of terrorists as “revolutionaries”.

        As Maudie said, she tries to sanitize the vile and cowardly acts of vile and cowardly people to excuse her admiration for them, which to me means she is either a vile and cowardly person or aspires to be.

        She sounds like she hopes we can find other Ayers and Dorhn types as she yearns for a future in which “..if the GOP wins the White House in 2012 that will be the last President of the United States…” Just what is that supposed to mean? Aside from her wishful thinking about the demise of the United States, that is. Demise or destruction, it’s all the same to these nihilistic pseudo-Goth self-styled “demon” losers in their basement fantasies.

        What a sad silly little twit this is, and what sad silly little fantasies entertain “her”.

    • Amazona March 8, 2012 / 2:37 pm

      Ooooh! An official of the United States shaking hands with the leader of another nation!! Get a noose!!

      Of course, the American official was the Secretary of Defense, not the President, and he was standing up, erect, and offering his hand, not bowing deeply to indicate servitude.

      But to the freakzos of the world, this is simply NOT TOLERABLE!! And it is PROOF of—well, of something, probably.

      Oh, who cares about protocol! That’s just another of the silly, annoying processes that conservatives find so important. To hell with established protocol, such as the way in which an official of of the United States is expected to greet the leader of another nation.

      In the vision of the Left, process is not only not important, it is just in the way, when an Elite ought to be able to make his own rules as he goes along. You know, rules like grabbing the Queen of England (this freedom to ignore and override protocol extends to all Elites, including the wife of the Ruling Elite) or bowing to foreign leaders.

        NOT bowing to foreign potentates is what 1776 was all about. You may have heard about it, the American Revolution? It made all the papers. Big news in its day … no? Ok, let me explain;

        The quintessence of “America” is that all men stand equal and are entitled by birth to look every other person, particularly a king, straight in the eye.

        Doesn’t surprise me you and Obama don’t know that.

      • Amazona March 9, 2012 / 4:30 pm

        A handshake is a sign of respect. Perhaps a very slight inclination of the head toward royalty if protocol so insists, but NEVER a full-fledged bow. NEVER.

        An eye-to-eye contact, and a handshake, show MUTUAL respect. Barry not only was not just showing respect, he was not asking for it from those to whom he groveled. And he did not get it, as his obeisance was accepted as what is due to superiors.

        Barry had his ass up in the air and his head down by his knees, he was so eager to show subservience to people who openly hate us and want the same thing “Diane” wants—the end of the United States.

        Looks to me like Panetta is a closet conservative handing the GOP yet another great campaign topic. This, accompanied by videos of Barry groveling to America’s enemies, ought to make a pretty interesting campaign ad.

    • RetiredSpook March 8, 2012 / 10:00 am

      I rarely watch Hannity, but last night he showed the same two videos that are at Breitbart.com. Unless you knew who Derrick Bell was, this wasn’t, as several of our resident Progressives have noted, a big deal. As Ben Shapiro notes in the post following the video:

      This is a man so extreme that, as we’ve reported, he wrote a story in 1993 in which he posited that white Americans would sell black Americans into slavery to aliens to relieve the national debt, and that Jews would go along with it.

      I actually thought the more interesting part was the short clip of Ogletree saying they had hid this video during the 2008 campaign, and, of course, the reason they hid it was because it was another damaging page in Obama’s long, close association with extremist radicals:

      There’s far more coming on Derrick Bell. This is just the beginning. And this video is a smoking gun showing that Barack Obama not only associated with radicals, he was their advocate.

      During the discussion on Hannity, even Juan Williams, not exactly a right-winger, admitted Bell was an extremist radical.

      I suspect what we’re going to find as more of these videos are released is that Obama was the least vetted presidential candidate by the media and his own party (pardon the redundancy) in recent memory., perhaps in the history of the country. They’re going to make for great GOP ads.

      • Count d'Haricots March 8, 2012 / 12:38 pm

        My error, the salaries for Staffers are listed for 5 month periods, meaning the numbers are all doubled at least (since some staffers are furloughed 2 – 6 months /year.)

        McConnell has at least 10 staffers making more than $80.0 K. Still don’t know why this is relevant.

        The U.S. oil drilling industry was bringing in cheap drilling rigs from China, sometimes staffing them with Chinese workers, and I know of at least some that were sent back for shoddy construction, serious safety problems, and untrained personnel. I heard of one rig that just fell apart.

        But when drilling was cut back, old rigs got worn out and new ones were not being built. I think the inventory of U.S. built rigs is being built up now.

      • dbschmidt March 8, 2012 / 2:03 pm

        With consideration of what I have heard so far today–Obama is lobbying Democrats to oppose the Keystone pipeline and Canada is on the verge of selling the oil to the Chinese for processing–we will not need the rigs or workers for the lost pipeline let alone infrastructure works which were / are “shovel ready?” some three years ago.

      • Amazona March 8, 2012 / 2:54 pm

        I will bet few here attend heavy equipment auctions, so this may not be well known to you. (I, on the other hand, have attended several, and sometimes look up the results of those I have not attended to see what is selling, where, and for how much.)

        The biggest auction house for construction and farm equipment is Ritchie Brothers, with large lots and auctions in the U.S. Many participants in these auctions are not there in person, but watching and bidding on the internet.

        There is a pattern for the sales. The beat-to-s**t stuff is usually sold to Mexicans, often to be sent to Mexico. Much if not most of the rest goes to Asia and Southeast Asia–a lot to Thailand, for example—-and to China. They pay top dollar.

        Often a group of equipment pieces will be offered from the same seller—six Caterpillar D-8s, for example—-and the top bidder can choose which of the six he wants. It is not unusual for an Asian bidder to simply take all six. I’ve seen several million dollars worth of good equipment sold in one day, to go to China.

        This has the effect of pricing small American businesses out of the market. Fine. This is what happens in a free market—you win some, you lose some.

        But to have this equipment bought for top dollar, by representatives of a nation which is then given construction contracts right here in this country, simultaneously driving up the prices of used equipment for the small American construction businesses and then cutting them out of domestic construction projects, is simply inexplicable.

        That is, if the goal is to stimulate the American economy, which is so dependent on small business.

        If the used equipment can be put to work right here in this country, in competition with American companies, so transportation of this massive equipment is not added to the net cost of purchase, and then the equipment is used to keep American businesses out of contention for American contracts for American jobs, there is a dynamic at work here that is contrary to claims of wanting to build American jobs and by extension the American economy.

        If China is willing to pay top dollar for equipment it needs to work in China, then the market will be a seller’s market and buyers will have to deal with it. But if Chinese companies are then given contracts for American projects, there is a problem.

      Anything that breitbart eventually throws out there pales in comparison to either fast & furious and the keystone pipeline. Two issues of which will badly hurt his reelection chances. Over 100 congress critters have asked for Holder to resign over fast & furious and the scandal gets more and more damaging almost by the day. Add that to obamas decision to kill the keystone at a time when gas prices are sky rocketing and unemployment is increasing and you have a pretty solid image of an out of touch president. Does everyone remember when Obama said he wouldn’t rest until every American had a job?

      • Cluster March 8, 2012 / 5:31 pm


        Lifting the moratorium back in 2008 resulted in a drop in the price of the barrel and subsequent drop at the pump. Little facts like this always elude you so I thought I would remind you. And that doesn’t even bring into account the thousands of good paying jobs and economic boom in several towns dotted along the way.

        Clear thinking adults are scratching their heads wondering why you and Obama are standing in their way.

      • James March 8, 2012 / 5:39 pm

        Maybe you’re out of touch. In 2008, de,and also caved dueto collapsing world economies.

        Our own demand collapsed in a matter of 2 months from September to December. Your argument that keystone would drop prices at the pump is therefore moot.

        As far as the jobs go, it would create about 5000 jobs for the period of construction….not bad, and maybe justifiable if you argue it.

        Bottom line, I’d say I know more about the energy industry than you do. I deal directly with operators in my research and development project. I’ve worked for shell in a previous life as a lead topside process manager.

        Trust me, keystone won’t do anything to dent prices. Global demand is driving price up, and that’s a side product of improving economies around the developing world.

        And having that refined oil (ie; gasoline and diesel fuel) right here on American soil would, of course, in the RRL and PL narratives, make no difference whatsoever.

        They also overlook the job creation related to building the pipeline, maintaining the pipeline, and refining the oil, no matter where it ends up.

        And who is the “they”? For now, let “them” sell the refined product—we still have the pipeline, we still have the refineries, and in a global petro crisis we have the infrastructure for using Canadian crude right here.

        This is what passes for content with these people.

        Well, refined oil (ie; gasoline and diesel fuel) are not projected to be transported in the pipeline, so there is no way the pipeline could accidentally leak them into American soil.

        Ah, details, details.

        I know, I know, these guys don’t even try to make sense. To them, as long as they can get some words on the blog, and pretend that they have scored a hit on (cue sinister music—–) CONSERVATIVES that’s all that matters.

        Notice that there is no rational objection to the pipeline. Barry wants it killed off, and that’s all the Barry kneepadders need to know. They are told what to think, or at least what to act like they think, and that’s enough for them.

        I really think one of the best things about this blog is the way it nudges Pseudo-Liberals to constantly reveal the shallowness of their “positions” and the eagerness with which they vie with each other to see who can be the dumbest.

      Thanks for the tipoff on the response of the RRL: Who cares what the video says. Who cares what the video means. None of it matters because it has already been seen. By someone, somewhere, at some time.

      You people come up with the silliest, most feeble and irrelevant responses to things, but this one is particularly amusing.

      Yeah, you just keep pretending that nothing will make a difference to anyone unless it has never ever been seen before. That sounds like a winning strategy. That and your tendency to put your fingers in your ears and yell “lalalalalalalala” whenever anyone says anything about your idol.

      We’ll probably go with “Some stuff was seen by a few but never made an issue because the Complicit Agenda Media either ignored it or covered it up, but now we can make sure it is widely known” and see if having this kind of stuff get past the limited YouTube audience will educate more people about the core ideology of Obama.

      Because we are going to make this election about the core ideology of Obama, no matter how hard you guys try to stop us. This is now a war of ideology, of one political system vs another, and you and your kind are going to have to define and defend your side or just stick to nonsense, the politics of personal destruction, Identity Politics, and hope you can hang on to enough lemmings to carry the day.

      • James March 8, 2012 / 4:50 pm

    The federal government recorded its worst monthly deficit in history in February, according to a preliminary report Wednesday from the Congressional Budget Office that said the deficit in fiscal year 2012 is already more than half a trillion dollars.

    9% unemployment, $5 gas, and record deficits. Good luck guys.

        I’ve never been to Palm Springs. I am spending next weekend in Vegas, which doesn’t thrill me—as a rancher I am spoiled by taking my time off during the week instead of on weekends—but with our new business getting off the ground so rapidly my brothers don’t want to be gone during the week. I’ve thought of going out a couple of days earlier or staying a couple of days later, just to veg out at the Venetian, spend a day at their spa, etc. I thought of driving over to PS just to see it.

      • dennis March 9, 2012 / 1:54 am

        James, it’s quite possible cluster paid nearly 5 bucks a gallon for gas. Your link showed the lowest prices but you know some of these high rollers might not want to be seen filling up at a Pilot station or Vons. It may make them feel superior to patronize the most expensive gas station nearest the golf club. Or the upscale watering hole. What the heck, it’s not even a shot of single malt price difference for filling up a 20-gallon tank. Pocket change for the Count, I’m sure. http://tinyurl.com/7m344uc

        As for neocon: “We dont need ‘LUCK’ we have a good MORAL CONSTITUTIONAL platform and they will come.”

        Yeah, there comes that tired old “moral” meme again. Not very persuasive to most average Americans, just the ones who listen to the likes of Bryan Fischer on religious radio or hang out here on B4V. True morality is expressed in the way one treats his fellow man, particularly the weakest and most vulnerable (the “least of these brothers of mine,” as someone once put it).

        Pride is excessive belief in one’s own abilities, that interferes with the individual’s recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

        Envy is the desire for others’ traits, status, abilities, MONEY or situation.

        Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

        Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.

        Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.

        Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness of OPM.

        Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.

      • Amazona March 9, 2012 / 10:06 am

        Poor sad silly dennis. He wasted all that time complaining about being misunderstood, about just being soooooo interested in the truth of Christianity, blah blah blah, and then he just couldn’t control that pathological snottiness that marks so many of his posts, and strips away the facade of reason to post his latest little snot nugget.

        Yeah, someone ELSE is so superficial that he purposely paid more than he had to for gasoline. Why? To IMPRESS STRANGERS, no less! Because he is so petty that it is important for him to have complete strangers see him at “..the most expensive gas station nearest the golf club…”

        And of course on Planet Dennis, people who see someone at a filling station near a “golf club” will stop and stare in amazement at this proof of vast wealth, and be impressed, thereby making the expenditure worthwhile to someone desperate for the envy of strangers.

        The pathology of anyone who could think this way is really creepy. And yes, dennis DOES think this way,or he would not have come up with this bizarre theory about why the Count paid so much money for gas in Palm Springs. It came through dennis’s creepy little resentful, envious, surly mind and was then projected onto someone else.

        Evidently drinking single malt whisky is also enough to trigger dennis’s resentment, poor baby. Though I think it was probably the reference to the Benz that tripped his envy trigger. (BTW, it’s a ’78 Benz.)

        What’s funny is that envy trigger snapped him off into such a weird, surly, and hallucinatory place where his inner demons are in control. I can now see the origins of his need to use Jesus to explain away his need to take away the money of those who have more than he does. It’s not that Jesus taught this—it’s that it pisses dennis off that anyone HAS more than he does.

        But it is now clear that dennis actually does see people who will throw money away in the foolish hope that complete strangers will interpret their choice of where to buy gas as indicative of their vast wealth, an act which makes them feel “superior”.

        You know, dennis, there may be meds for your condition.

        I believe Cluster stated he paid $5.00 a gallon. that does NOT make the national AVERAGE $5.00
        please try to move on, this stuck on stupid of yours is annoying and a waste of band width.

      • Amazona March 9, 2012 / 10:37 am

        So if I say I paid $3.09 yesterday in Cheyenne I would be lying, because the national average is $3.79 ?

        That’s a 70 cents a gallon difference.

        Add 70 cents to the $4.19 average Diane herownself quoted for California, and you get, by jiminy, $4.89 !!!

        Cheyenne always has lower gas prices, probably because of the proximity of refineries. I paid $3.17 in Denver.

        I was at a chain station a few months ago commenting to the clerk that just 45 miles away, the same company’s gas was 40 cent a gallon higher, and it probably all came from the same source. The guy next to me in line said “It comes from the same truck ! I know, because I drive the truck—it’s sitting out there right now.” He went on to say that if I were to drive about 100 miles, to another of their stations, it would be even more expensive.

        But according to dennis’s pathology, the people in that last town really only pay more because it makes them feel superior.

        Watching the various pathologies of the Left bounce off each other here is kind of interesting, in a creepy sort of way. Too bad none of them ever write about politics.

      • Count d'Haricots March 9, 2012 / 11:40 am

        $5.29 at the Arco by the freeway (Moreno Valley) this morning. $5.19 in Palm Springs as of last night.

        “Diane’s” eia price is a weekly average, not what anyone would actually pay today or last weekend.

        Isn’t it amazing how liberals just assume they know everything without really knowing anything at all? Their self righteousness is probably their most annoying character trait. Look at how James, dennis and Diane have all told us that we are lying, when neither one of them have even been to the area. It’s astonishing.

      • Count d'Haricots March 9, 2012 / 1:02 pm

        I know, like telling us what we “really mean“.

        When I head east to visit friends in Peoria we always stop at the station in Quartzite for a fillup, then fill the tank before leaving Phoenix and top off in Quartzite again before crossing the Califonia desert where the price jumps up half a buck or more as soon as we cross the river.

        Haven’t been across the Arizona border in a few months but I imagine the price jump is just as significant as before.

      • Cluster March 9, 2012 / 1:09 pm

        It is, I pay $3.89 here in Phoenix, and when I drove out to Palm Desert a coupe of weekends ago I stopped at a little station in Indio and paid $4.93!! I think in Blythe the gas was about $4.49 where as just across the border near Quartzsite it was still $3.89 or thereabouts.

      • dennis March 9, 2012 / 4:26 pm

        Cluster: ” Look at how James, dennis and Diane have all told us that we are lying.”

        I never remotely suggested you were lying, Cluster – to the contrary, I told James (the only person I’ve addressed on this thread until now) you probably weren’t lying, and suggested possibilities as to why, in a satirical manner.

        I’m really sorry you didn’t get the satire. Maybe it’s because of the reading comprehension, I don’t know. A little humor makes things in life that could be maddening so much easier to laugh off. (Mind you, I make no claim of being a Mark Twain or a Mel Brooks, but I think most people of a moderate temperament would have gotten my point above without taking offense.)

        Btw, the Benz has a 24 gallon gas tank, only runs on premium gasoline, and only takes Chevron. These are conscience decisions I make about my money; like drinking Oban instead of Lauders. When one earns the right to be discriminating, you no longer give a crap about what people like you think. Oh, sure, we all gather at the 19th Hole and synchronize our Cartier’s and Eterna’s to meet at the Chevron Full-Service Island and disdainfully regard some nobody driving by in a 1998 Shakybuttsu.

You remind me of the Occupy crowd and the extremely juvenile unison chants they would engage in. It’s a shame that you choose to lower and demean yourself instead of looking inward and increasing the many wonderful individual traits and characteristics that God has given you.

        “Our people” stirs up an image of a couple of high school Goths scurrying home to someone’s mom’s basement where, after they pretend to drink blood, they elaborate on their Hell fantasies and try to come up with ways to compensate for their social pariah status and loser identification.

        Down in the cellar, they are powerful, have credentials, have identities they have carefully crafted to try to overcome the deficiencies of their own, and they can pretend to be what they so clearly are not.

    According to Frances Fox Piven:

    The Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble.”
    “We’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.”
    Different forms of protests that will engage many people.
    Occupy was helped by “sympathetic” press coverage.

      • Amazona March 9, 2012 / 8:42 pm

        Now, Count, be nice. dolf claims to be married, but his claim that his wife and daughter “like to buy shoes and purses” always did sound like something that would be said by someone who had never spent any time around real women.

        And he is often quite fey and twee. Rather embarrassingly so.

        And he HAS been quite obsessed with Rick Santorum and speculation on his sexual orientation, speculation that seemed to have a rather wistful quality to it.

        But no, in a typically dolfish non sequitur he once dismissed a neo comment on the Cloward/Pivens strategy as irrelevant because one of them was old and one dead.

        Though I imagine Sasan would be quite taken with dolf, given their remarkable resemblance to each other—kinda like freakzo putting his own clown face on his inflatable boy toy, a chance to —but no, I said I would not go there.

      • Count d'Haricots March 9, 2012 / 8:52 pm


        My mistake. I just assumed after all those comments about Rick Santorum that ‘dolf was just hinting around to see if anyone would pick up his clues and release him from his closet-prison.

        Not that I have anything, you know, against gays, some of my best friends and all that … it just isn’t my cup o’ tea, know what I mean?

    Fresh off the success of their “Who’s on First” routine, President Broke “Bud” Obbott explains unemployment figures to Energy Secretary Lou Costeven Chu in a classic Obbott and Costevenchu Comedy Bit.
    LOU COSTEVENCHU: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

    BUD OBBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 9%.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: That many people are out of work?

    BUD OBBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: You just said 9%.

    BUD OBBOTT: 9% Unemployed.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: Right 9% out of work.

    BUD OBBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: Okay, so it’s 16% unemployed.

    BUD OBBOTT: No, that’s 9%…

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 9% or 16%?

    BUD OBBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

    BUD OBBOTT: No, you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.


    BUD OBBOTT: No, you miss my point.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: What point?

    BUD OBBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.


    BUD OBBOTT: The unemployed.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: But they are ALL out of work.

    BUD OBBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work… Those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up. And, if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: So if you’re off the unemployment rolls, that would count as less unemployment?

    BUD OBBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?

    BUD OBBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how you get to 9%. Otherwise, it would be 16%. You don’t want to read about 16% unemployment do ya?

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: That would be frightening.

    BUD OBBOTT: Absolutely.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

    BUD OBBOTT: Two ways is correct.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

    BUD OBBOTT: Correct.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

    BUD OBBOTT: Bingo.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to just stop looking for work.

    BUD OBBOTT: Now you’re thinking like an economist.

    LOU COSTEVENCHU: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

    And now you know why Obama’s unemployment figures are improving!

      This is great!!

      Well, really really funny but also painful because it is also so true.

      I think my favorite part is “Now you’re thinking like an economist.”

    I am under the firm opinion that Mr. Breitbart was assassinated by Obama and team.
    The reason for this is simple, because Obama in principal has committed treason against the United States of America, and Mr. Breitbart, as well as others were working hard to expose the lies and corruption that Mr. Obama and team have so stained our White House and Congress with.
